Move aside, Taylor Swift: There’s a new squad in town.
Brie Larson and Emma Stone made headlines when they sobbed in each other’s arms at the 2017 Oscars. As it turns out, Stone means quite a lot to Larson. Larson credits Stone (and a host of other female starlets) with saving her life.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, Larson opened up about the friends who have gotten her through her most challenging times. Larson says she struggled during the press tour for her 2015 film “Room,” admitting that she felt “lonely and bad sometimes.”
“I was embarrassed to keep talking about myself,” Larson told Vanity Fair.
Luckily, Larson found fast friends in her fellow young actors.
“Emma wrote this beautiful e-mail out of nowhere, and then one day Jen [Lawrence] sent me a text message after she saw ‘Room,’ and we started talking,” Larson said.
That conversation soon became a group chat with Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Schumer and Lena Dunham.
“That [group of friends] saved my life,” Larson said. “I was able to talk with them about everything that was going on in my life, and it was with people who had been through it before and are also hilarious. That support and acceptance was everything. I was home-schooled, so I didn’t have friends that had the same interests as me, and I found it to be absolutely incredible.”
Oh, to be a fly on the wall of that group text. Just add Jacob Tremblay to the mix and you’ve got one squad to rule them all.
